Oscar the Grouch Comes to Life in "Night at the Museum 2"

"Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian", which opens in theaters nation-wide on May 22nd, not only stars some of Hollywood's top actors - including Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Robin Williams, Steve Coogan, Ricky Gervais, Amy Adams, Hank Azaria, Bill Hader, and Dick Van Dyke, - but also features a surprising cameo from the legendary Sesame Street start Oscar the Grouch.

When the Museum of Natural History is closed for upgrades and renovations, the museum pieces are moved to the Smithsonian Museums in Washington DC; and once again, watchman Larry Daley (Ben Stiller) finds himself in the middle of a museum brought to life. Among the items in the Smithsonian's collection is one of the original Oscar the Grouch puppets, and in the film it too comes to life. In a cameo appearance Oscar comes alive and interacts with another pop culture icon - Star Wars' Darth Vader.

"Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian" opens in theaters on May 22nd. So be sure to check out this fun magical family film, and catch Oscar the Grouch up on the big screen again.

I had heard about Oscar, but Darth Vader was news to me! It's cool to have two icons from 1970s childhood making an appearance together. Thanks!
